In Regulation rethought the Authority sets out its proposals for a transformation of the regulation of health and care professionals, suggesting how the ideas in its earlier paper Rethinking regulation could put into practice. The proposals are primarily focused on public protection and professional responsibility. They are intended to create clarity for patients, and allow greater flexibility of approach for regulators, employers, policy makers and others shaping the workforce.
